A 54-year-old man has been charged with hate crime for assaulting an Indian-origin woman on a subway and hurling homophobic slurs at her.
Allasheed Allah from Manhattan's East Harlem neighbourhood was arrested on Thursday and charged with assault as a hate crime and aggravated harassment against 20-year-old Avneet Kaur during the November 30 attack in New York City's Queens borough, the police said.
The third paragraph details the serious nature of the assault:
Allah is also accused of hurling homophobic slurs at the woman before physically attacking her and leaving her with a fractured spine, NBC News reported on Friday. He faces up to 15 years in prison for the attack and will return to court on December 27.
A Muslim guy fractures the spine of an Indian woman in America. Isn't diversity just lovely? Don't expect this story to be given 24/7 coverage for the rest of the month since it can't be used to bash White Americans.
"Queens County is the most diverse county in the nation. It is home to many races, nationalities and sexual orientations. Crimes motivated by bias - particularly those involving violence - will never be tolerated in this county," said Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown in a statement.
What this clown fails to comprehend is that it's diversity itself that caused this problem. He might as well put zebras, hyenas, and lions in an arena and demand zero violence.
